Fighting Illness with Art
Since graduation, Patrick Mohundro (â??07 Fine Arts Drawing) has focused his attention on teaching, volunteering, and drawing. As a teacher and volunteer in Mozambique, he researched the different dynamics and struggles of power among students, teachers, politicians, and other members of his community for over two years.
Returning to the U.S., Patrick has spent the past year creating drawings that represent his experience in Mozambique and developing Healthy, Hearty Bushwick. The community health project aims to improve the quality of life of HIV-positive Brooklyn NY residents who struggle with substance abuse and mental illness through art and healthy lifestyle changes.
